Car accident. A rig pulls up and Mark mooches over to Doris, who climbs out of it. She asks what he's doing there, and he begs her to give him a ride to Northbrook. Your tax dollars at work, folks. Chauffeuring doctors with poor time-management skills to their weddings. Doris says it's outside her catchment area. He tells her about the wedding, and she relents, asking him to help her clear the scene. Doris approaches Kevin, and Mark asks him to let her check his vital signs. "Let him bleed!" interjects Mrs. Kevin. I get my first good look at Kevin and see he's played by Arye Gross, who used to be a second-tier movie star. Okay, third-tier. Still. Two dark scenes on ER is a step down from where he used to be. (Which is in The Experts with John Travolta and Kelly Preston.) Mark sunnily tells Kevin that if he's okay, he can take himself to the hospital. Kevin's like, "Who the hell are you?" Mark tells him he's a doctor. Doris asks Kevin whether he hit his head. Kevin, who's holding a tissue to his bleeding forehead, snaps, "What do you think?" Benton shows up and asks Mark what's going on; Mark tells him that he's going to catch a ride with Doris to the church. (I'm sure at this point Doris is thinking, "Thanks for the invitation, former Emergency Whatever Liaison Maggot.") Benton tells Mark to wait in the car and says he'll clear the scene; Mark directs Benton to examine Mrs. Kevin. Benton asks Mrs. Kevin, who is pregnant, whether she's in any pain. Mrs. Kevin ignores him, choosing instead to harangue Kevin, "Where is the little whore? Getting more ass fat put in her lips?" Kevin shoots back, "She didn't slam her car into anybody, you psychotic bitch!" (At this point, Mark's thinking, "I'm glad I'm not marrying anyone this pregnant and mean. Oh, wait...shit.") Mrs. Kevin is partway through another insult when she kind of lurches and bends over. Benton asks what's happening, and she says she thinks her water just broke. My god, you people, Mark has to get to his wedding! How can you all be so selfish?! Benton asks when the baby's due, and Kevin replies, "Tuesday." Benton asks whether it's her first baby, and Mrs. Kevin sniffs, "No, I gave this bastard a son." Mark asks how long her first labour was.
